Read all types of books. The best way to learn to write (in my opinion) is to read, and consider why you like or don't like certain books. Consider what works for you and what does not and apply that to your own writing.
Also -- write the stories you MUST tell. Don't feel you have to follow trends, or that your unique idea has no market. Write from your heart, THEN use your head to learn to edit, revise, query, market, etc. (less)

I was looking for an idea for a Young Adult fantasy, so this sparked my interest in considering a retelling. "The Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen was always one of my favorite fairy tales, and I thought a story from the Snow Queen's point-of-view would be a challenge--and I love challenges! (less)

“How about a little teaser from CROWN OF ICE?

Thyra Winther, the current Snow Queen speaks about her "home":

At night the palace’s crystal halls are tinged sapphire. One of the first bits of magic that Voss taught me was to set the carved walls alight so that I’m not forced to walk the halls in darkness. I conjure a cold light that glows within the thick walls without melting the ice. I mastered this trick quickly once I knew what those shadows held. If I leave an area in darkness, they come—the girls who reigned as Snow Queen before me.
“I must find it.” Their hollow words wind about me like a shroud. “The last piece. I must place it. Give it to me.”
Vicki L. Weavil, Crown of Ice

“My parents lie somewhere beneath the snow, buried with my mortal life.”
Vicki L. Weavil, Crown of Ice
